SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08g47yt)
ENO premieres Wigglesworth's The Winter's Tale

As a new opera based on Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale opens at English National Opera this week, Tom Service meets its creators, the composer-conductor Ryan Wigglesworth and director Rory Kinnear, and steps inside rehearsals to talk to Sophie Bevan, who sings the role of Hermione.

Tom also explores the music and ideas in a new book by the music journalist Tim Rutherford-Johnson. Music After the Fall sets out to answer questions about the complex relationship between new music and wider culture since 1989.

And he travels to Devon for this year's Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival, Voice 2.0, staged in partnership with Plymouth University’s pioneering Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research. Tom meets the ICCMR's director Eduardo Reck Miranda, whose work for human and synthetic voices, Vov, features a new language by David Peterson, creator of the Dothraki language for Games of Thrones. Alexis Kirke explains how he's analysed the emotional content of lyrics by Lennon and McCartney for his new piece Come Together, and Nuria Bonnet demonstrates how she's using data from a buoy in Looe harbour in her electronic work Voice of the Sea.

SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b08g47yw)
Andrew Biswell - Burgess at 100

Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange, had a close relationship with classical music - not only did it influence his novels, but he also wrote his own music. On the centenary of his birth, Burgess's biographer Andrew Biswell presents music that inspired him, including pieces by Beethoven, Walton and Constant Lambert. There's also the opportunity to hear some of Burgess's own music, including the Manchester Overture. As the director of the Burgess archive, the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Andrew Biswell has unique access to Burgess's books on music, his LPs and the original handwritten scores of the music he wrote.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07gn5cj)
Andrew Solomon

Andrew Solomon is Professor of Clinical Psychology at Columbia Medical Centre in New York, and a writer with a wide-ranging interest in families. He spent ten years talking to parents who faced extraordinary challenges, because their children had turned out so very different from them: either through disabilities, or because they were musical prodigies - or because they had committed serious crimes. The resulting book, "Far From the Tree - Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity" has won many awards, and millions of people have watched Solomon's TED talks. Solomon first made an impact with another prize-winning book, about depression, "The Noonday Demon", a moving account of his own illness.

In Private Passions, Andrew Solomon talks to Michael Berkeley about how both books are grounded in his own experience; he had a hard time growing up, and being accepted by his parents - and his peers - as gay. He reveals that at one point he was so depressed that he couldn't get out of bed, and thought he'd had a stroke. It was his father's love and care which saved him. He talks too about how he met his husband, and became a father himself - albeit as part of a marvellously complex and unconventional family.

Music choices include Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro"; Strauss's "Der Rosenkavalier"; Bryn Terfel singing Vaughan Williams's "Songs of Travel"; Rachmaninov's 3rd Piano Concerto, and love songs by Reynaldo Hahn, Strauss and Britten.

Opera Profiles, Opera Profile: Handel's Alcina

Lucie Skeaping continues the Early Music Show's series of opera profiles by delving into the music and history surrounding Handel's "Alcina". Based on the epic poem by Ariosto, the libretto by Antonio Marchi provided Handel with some very intense dramatic opportunities, including star-crossed lovers, dark magic and madness.

Alcina was composed for Handel's first season at London's Covent Garden Theatre and it premiered on April 16 1735. Like many of the composer's other serious stage works, it fell into general obscurity; after a revival in Brunswick in 1738 it was not performed again until a production in Leipzig nearly two centuries later, in 1928. It has now become one of Handel's most popular operas.

Lucie Skeaping talks to the American harpsichordist and musical director Alan Curtis at his home in Florence. Curtis recorded Alcina in 2007 with his ensemble Il Complesso Barocco. That recording also starred Joyce DiDonato in the title role and Karina Gauvin as her sister Morgana (the role that was originally written for Thomas Arne's wife, Cecila Young).

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08g4c36)
Beethoven's Ninth Symphony

Tom Service explores arguably the most famous piece of music in the world: the Ode to Joy from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. It's a piece which has been appropriated by everyone from the European Union, to the writer Anthony Burgess, who used it as an unsettling counterpoint to the murderous exploits of the characters in his novel A Clockwork Orange. Tom asks whether Beethoven's original vision of a musical utopia has actually turned out to be far more dangerous than the composer could ever have imagined.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b036v4pk)
Suburbs

Emily Joyce and Philip Franks take a literary walk through the suburbs, to music by JS Bach, Philip Glass, Kaikhosru Sorabji and others.

Suburbs sprung up in the 19th century along the rail routes that led out of rapidly growing cities like London and the major industrial centres. Suburbs now cover large swathes of our post-industrial landscape and have led to a particular culture which has evolved from the daily commute to work.

This edition of Words and Music wanders through suburbs, from those dark industrial places of Dickens's times to the uniform towns experienced by Hanif Kureishi and Adrian Henri. Suburbs provide a peaceful haven at the end of the working day, a near-rural setting, a nice place in which to grow up, in which to learn certain morals, but also a place of ennui, monotony and rebellion. The programme includes texts from Dickens's Old Curiosity Shop, Hanif Kureishi's Buddha of Suburbia, and poems by John Betjeman, DH Lawrence, William Cowper, Emerson, Tennyson, Arthur Guiterman, Gwen Harwood, Aesop, Margaret Atwood, Hardy, Kipling, TS Eliot, John Davidson, EE Cummings and Adrian Henri.

John Ruskin's Eurhythmic Girls

Perhaps you did music and movement at school. There was a time girls across the country learnt to dance as if they were flowers. At the start of the 20th century, Jacques-Dalcroze developed Eurythmics to teach the rhythm and structure of music through physical activity. But the idea had earlier roots, including an unlikely champion of women's liberation.

John Ruskin - now derided by feminist critics as a woman-fearing medievalist - was at the centre of a 19th-century education movement that challenged the conventional female role in society. Amid concerns about the health of the British empire he looked back to the muscular figures in medieval painting and the sculpture of the ancient Greeks, in their loose-fitting clothes. Perhaps the Victorians needed to shed their corsets and free their minds for learning. In Of Queens' Gardens he set out a radical, influential model for girls' education.

Samira Ahmed argues that Ruskin was an accidental feminist. To understand where his ideas came from, how they were enacted and what survives in the way girls are taught today, she ventures into one of the schools set up on Ruskinian principles, tries on the corsetry that restricted Victorian women's lives, and gets the insight of Victorian scholars.

Contributors: Matthew Sweet (author of Inventing the Victorians); Dr Debbie Challis (Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, UCL); Louise Scholz-Conway (Angels Costumes); Dr Fern Riddell (author of A Victorian Guide to Sex); Dr Amara Thornton (Institute of Archaeology, UCL) and Isobel Beynon, Dr Wendy Bird, Annette Haynes, Dr Jean Horton, Diane Maclean, Aoife Morgan Jones and Natasha Rajan at Queenswood School.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b08g4cly)
Oedipus the King

Never before performed or heard in the UK, Burgess's Oedipus the King is a robust and powerful version of Sophocles' classic text. The drama includes an invented language that Burgess created especially for the 1972 production of the piece at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, USA, which has been archived in the International Anthony Burgess Foundation archive. This broadcast will be the first time it has been spoken or heard in over forty years.

Christopher Eccleston, a keen Burgess fan, who used to run a market stall in the same area of Manchester that Burgess grew up in, stars as Oedipus; Don Warrington as Creon, Adjoa Andoh as Jocasta and Fiona Shaw as Tiresias, the ancient blind prophet who was born both man and woman.

The music was composed for the original theatre production by Obie Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated composer of the show, Stanley Silverman. Stanley has worked with Arthur Miller, Pierre Boulez, James Taylor, Elton John, Sting and with legendary New York theatre maker Richard Foreman.
The BBC Philharmonic and Manchester-based Kantos Chamber Choir perform the music, conducted by Clark Rundell.

Oedipus starts the drama as a powerful king, who has risen from an impoverished newcomer to Thebes by freeing the land from the curse of the monstrous Sphinx, solving a seemingly simple yet impenetrable riddle. Over the course of the play his world unravels. A new blight is on the land and he is determined to rescue his people by rooting out the cause.

Oedipus is an iconic anti-hero, doomed from the outset to disaster, yet blithely storming ahead, oblivious to his own fate, convinced that he has managed to outwit fate. Burgess's accessible, dynamic rendition of a classic story focuses on the contradictions and complexities of a proud man's downfall:
"...Oedipus is the cause of the state's disease and disruption but also, through his discovery of and expiation for sin, the cause of its recovered health. He is a criminal but also a saint. In other words he is a tragic hero..."

Part of Radio 3's Burgess Centenary programming, marking 100 years since the birth of Manchester-born novelist and playwright Anthony Burgess.

Anthony Burgess is one of the best-known English literary figures of the latter half of the twentieth century. His dystopian satire A Clockwork Orange is his best-known novel. In 1971 it was adapted into a highly controversial film by Stanley Kubrick. Burgess produced numerous other novels, including the Enderby quartet, and Earthly Powers, regarded by most critics as his greatest novel. He wrote librettos and screenplays, including for the 1977 TV mini-series Jesus of Nazareth. He worked as a literary critic for several publications, including The Observer and The Guardian, and wrote studies of classic writers, notably James Joyce. A versatile linguist, Burgess lectured in phonetics, and translated Cyrano de Bergerac and the opera Carmen, among others. Burgess also composed over 250 musical works.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the cartoonist and illustrator Gerald Scarfe. Gerald began working for Punch magazine and Private Eye, and went on to become one of the UK's most distinguished cartoonists, enjoying long associations with The Sunday Times and The New Yorker. He's also designed sets for productions at both English National Opera and English National Ballet, as well as animation sequences for Walt Disney's Hercules. In the course of a career spanning more than 50 years, Gerald has met and drawn luminaries including Igor Stravinsky, Aaron Copland and former US President Lyndon B Johnson, so he has a few stories up his sleeve. As well as discussing his life, Gerald will be sharing some of his favourite classical music, including Stravinsky, Mahler and Sibelius.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Today Rob turns his attention to the Classical period with Schubert's Fantasia in C major for violin and piano - a hybrid between a virtuoso showpiece and a serious chamber work that incorporates both the Classical and the newly developing Romantic styles.

11am
Artist of the Week: George Malcolm
This week Rob celebrates 100 years since the birth of English keyboard player and conductor George Malcolm. Malcolm was one of the most revered harpsichordists of his generation, and each day this week Rob explores his illustrious career with recordings that demonstrate his talents not only as a harpsichordist, but also as an organist, fortepianist and conductor. The recordings reflect Malcolm's fervent championing of baroque keyboard masters such as Domenico Scarlatti and JS Bach, in addition to his association with Benjamin Britten, plus a rare instance of him duetting with András Schiff in a sonata by Mozart.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), Family Affairs

Donald Macleod introduces the life and music of this complex character during the turbulent years 1806 - 1812 when he produced some of the greatest masterpieces of his life. Donald examines Beethoven's relationships with friends, family, women, patrons and publishers, and with the city which he made his home - Vienna. 1806 was a difficult year for Beethoven on a personal level - he tried unsuccessfully to prevent the marriage of his brother Caspar Carl to a woman he thoroughly disapproved of, in the process greatly damaging their already fragile relationship. But it was also a highly productive year for Beethoven; he produced a steady stream of new works including his Fourth Piano Concerto, three string quartets written for Count Rasumovsky and a set of Variations for Piano on an Original Theme all of which helped boost his reputation both in Vienna and throughout Europe.

MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b08g4fhc)
Wigmore Hall Mondays: David Greilsammer

Live from Wigmore Hall in London, Live from Wigmore Hall in London, Israeli pianist David Greilsammer plays sonatas Scarlatti on the piano, and by John Cage on prepared piano.

Introduced by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Scarlatti: Sonatas in D minor K213, D minor Kk141, E major Kk531, B minor Kk27, B minor Kk87, A minor Kk175, E major Kk380, D major Kk492
Cage: Sonatas Nos 14, 13, 11, 1, 12, 16, 5

David Greilsammer (piano & prepared piano)

Israeli pianist David Greilsammer intersperses two composers of highly individualistic and edgy keyboard sonatas. Scarlatti's sonatas, originally written for harpsichord, are among the most inventive, quirky and individualistic works not just of the Baroque era, but in all music, while in John Cage's sonatas for 'prepared piano', an ordinary piano is transformed by introducing objects such as screws, nails and rubbers between the strings to produce surprising new tone colours.

Burgess at 100, Burgess and the Morality of Contemporary Culture - AL Kennedy

Anthony Burgess is one of the best-known English literary figures of the latter half of the twentieth century. A polymath of the highest order, he was a novelist, composer, translator, screenwriter, travel writer, teacher, linguist, phoneticist, essayist, short-story writer, critic and poet.

Five writers, some of whom knew him in person, reflect on their favourite Burgess incarnation, exploring this extraordinary 20th-century man of letters from different angles. Everything Burgess wrote contributed to his main oeuvre, his musical composition as important to him as his novels that were shaped heavily by his critical analysis of others' fiction which was informed by his poetry and so on. Burgess at 100 offers personal as well as critical insight into why and how he is a literary figure of such importance.

Part of Radio 3's Burgess Centenary programming, marking 100 years since the birth of Manchester-born novelist and playwright Anthony Burgess.

Burgess and the morality of contemporary culture - AL Kennedy

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Gerald Scarfe

9am
Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: listen to the clues and identify a musical mystery person.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the cartoonist and illustrator Gerald Scarfe. Gerald began working for Punch magazine and Private Eye, and went on to become one of the UK's most distinguished cartoonists, enjoying long associations with The Sunday Times and The New Yorker. He's also designed sets for productions at both English National Opera and English National Ballet, as well as animation sequences for Walt Disney's Hercules. In the course of a career spanning more than 50 years, Gerald has met and drawn luminaries including Igor Stravinsky, Aaron Copland and former US President Lyndon B. Johnson, so he has a few stories up his sleeve. As well as discussing his life, Gerald will be sharing some of his favourite classical music.

10.30am
Music in Time: Renaissance
Today Rob explores an unsung composer of Renaissance polyphony, Giaches de Wert, who's associated with the final generation of the Franco-Flemish School. Rob's focusing on de Wert's Italian influences and the expressive use of harmony in his motet, Vox in Rama.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two interpretations of one of Reynaldo Hahn's best-loved songs, A Chloris, featuring soprano Véronique Gens and mezzo-soprano Susan Graham.

11am
Artist of the Week: George Malcolm
This week Rob celebrates 100 years since the birth of English keyboard player and conductor George Malcolm. Malcolm was one of the most revered harpsichordists of his generation, and each day this week Rob explores his illustrious career with recordings that demonstrate his talents not only as a harpsichordist, but also as an organist, fortepianist and conductor. The recordings reflect Malcolm's fervent championing of baroque keyboard masters such as Domenico Scarlatti and JS Bach, in addition to his association with Benjamin Britten, plus a rare instance of him duetting with András Schiff in a sonata by Mozart.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), Love and Longing

In 1807 there was an explosion in performances of Beethoven's music. His name on a concert programme would guarantee a full house, and his music became the biggest draw for Viennese audiences, second only to Haydn. And thanks to a rise in popularity of domestic music-making, there was a huge demand for instrumental music. Donald Macleod introduces the cello sonata dedicated to a friend Beethoven had asked to help him find a wife, one of his most popular piano pieces presented to the woman in question, and the extraordinary choral work, barely finished in time for his own benefit concert which broke down during the first performance.

The heartrending slow movement of Bruckner's Seventh Symphony became a tribute to the composer's idol, Wagner. Learning of Wagner's death as he was completing the movement, Bruckner dedicated it 'to the memory of the late, deeply beloved and immortal Master'. Wolfgang Rihm's Piano Concerto No 2 (2014), already performed in Salzburg and Washington, creates not only witty interplay between soloist and orchestra, but beautifully detailed scoring of often ravishing delicacy.

Burgess at 100, Burgess and the Malay Novels - Tash Aw

Anthony Burgess is one of the best-known English literary figures of the latter half of the twentieth century. A polymath of the highest order, he was a novelist, composer, translator, screenwriter, travel writer, teacher, linguist, phoneticist, essayist, short-story writer, critic and poet.

Five writers, some of whom knew him in person, reflect on their favourite Burgess incarnation, exploring this extraordinary 20th-century man of letters from different angles. Everything Burgess wrote contributed to his main oeuvre, his musical composition as important to him as his novels that were shaped heavily by his critical analysis of other's fiction which was informed by his poetry and so on. Burgess at 100 offers personal as well as critical insight into why and how he is a literary figure of such importance.

Part of Radio 3's Burgess Centenary programming, marking 100 years since the birth of Manchester-born novelist and playwright Anthony Burgess.

Burgess and the Malay novels - Tash Aw

Tash Aw is the author of three novels, including Five Star Billionaire, and a work of non-fiction, The Face. His books have been translated into 24 languages and won numerous prizes, including the Whitbread, Commonwealth and O Henry Prizes; they have also been twice longlisted for the Booker Prize.

Anthony Burgess is a key figure in 20th-century world literature. His dystopian satire A Clockwork Orange is still a global best seller and was adapted into a highly controversial film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971. Burgess produced numerous other novels, including the Enderby quartet, and Earthly Powers, regarded by many as his greatest novel. He wrote librettos and screenplays, including for the 1977 TV mini-series Jesus of Nazareth. He worked as a literary critic for several publications, including The Observer and The Guardian, and wrote studies of classic writers, notably James Joyce. A versatile linguist, Burgess lectured in phonetics, and translated Cyrano de Bergerac and the opera Carmen, among others. Burgess also composed over 250 musical works.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), Vienna's Darkest Hour

Donald Macleod introduces Beethoven's incidental music for a play by Goethe, the aptly named 'Serioso' string quartet, and a piano fantasia, all written during the dark days following the Napoleonic occupation of Vienna.
Thanks to the occupation of Vienna by Napoleon's troops in 1809, the citizens suffered great hardships including rising prices, crippling taxes and food shortages. Beethoven had just negotiated a comfortable financial package from three of his patrons when soaring inflation caused its value to drop dramatically and he struggled to make ends meet. Donald Macleod looks at works written during these straitened circumstances, including the incidental music to Goethe's play Egmont in which Beethoven gives his heartfelt response to the invasion. Also, the Piano Fantasia, one of a group of solo piano works written that same year, which gives some indication of the remarkable skill Beethoven was renowned for as an improviser. And the piano trio named after his patron and faithful friend, Archduke Rudolph Rudolph, begun in 1810, and from the late summer of that year, a new string quartet, full of extreme anguish and compressed intensity, aptly named 'Serioso'.

Burgess and populism/class - Simon Rennie

Simon Rennie is lecturer in Victorian Poetry at the University of Exeter. He specialises in working-class poetic cultures of the mid-nineteenth century, and recently published a book on the poetry of the Chartist leader, Ernest Charles Jones. He is currently researching the poetry of the Lancashire Cotton Famine of 1861-65. Before becoming an academic Simon worked for twenty years in various manufacturing and warehousing roles, mostly as an upholsterer and workshop foreman. He is a published poet and enjoys running longish distances, singing choral music, and playing the guitar and erhu (two-string Chinese fiddle).

Anthony Burgess is a key figure in 20th-century world literature. His dystopian satire A Clockwork Orange is still a global best seller, and was adapted into a highly controversial film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971.

He wrote librettos and screenplays, including for the 1977 TV mini-series Jesus of Nazareth. He worked as a literary critic for several publications, including The Observer and The Guardian, and wrote studies of classic writers, notably James Joyce. A versatile linguist, Burgess lectured in phonetics, and translated Cyrano de Bergerac and the opera Carmen, among others. Burgess also composed over 250 musical works.

Thursday - Rob Cowan with Gerald Scarfe

9am
Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: can you work out which two composers are associated with a particular piece?

10am
Rob's guest this week is the cartoonist and illustrator Gerald Scarfe. Gerald began working for Punch magazine and Private Eye, and went on to become one of the UK's most distinguished cartoonists, enjoying long associations with The Sunday Times and The New Yorker. He's also designed sets for productions at both English National Opera and English National Ballet, as well as animation sequences for Walt Disney's Hercules. In the course of a career spanning more than 50 years, Gerald has met and drawn luminaries including Igor Stravinsky, Aaron Copland and former US President Lyndon B Johnson, so he has a few stories up his sleeve. As well as discussing his life, Gerald will be sharing some of his favourite classical music.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Rob heads back to the Romantic period to see how César Franck put his own stamp on one of the most liberating forms of nineteenth-century orchestral music, the symphonic poem. Rob explores how Franck's Les Éolides translates poetic images into sound.

Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of You are my Heart's Delight from Lehár's operetta, The Land of Smiles.

11am Artist of the Week
This week Rob celebrates 100 years since the birth of English keyboard player and conductor George Malcolm. Malcolm was one of the most revered harpsichordists of his generation, and each day this week Rob explores his illustrious career with recordings that demonstrate his talents not only as a harpsichordist, but also as an organist, fortepianist and conductor. The recordings reflect Malcolm's fervent championing of baroque keyboard masters such as Domenico Scarlatti and JS Bach, in addition to his association with Benjamin Britten, plus a rare instance of him duetting with András Schiff in a sonata by Mozart.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), Businessman and Charity-Giver

Donald Macleod looks at two distinctly different sides of Beethoven's character as he strikes a publishing deal in England and willingly gives up his time and music to benefit the needy. In 1810 Beethoven took advantage of his growing popularity in England and sold some of his music to Muzio Clementi, who had set himself up as a publisher in London. From these works Donald introduces an intimate piano sonata, a piece whose intimate scale is in direct contrast to the grand sweep of the previous 'Appassionata' Sonata. Also, his newly published oratorio, a copy of which he'd happily provided for performance at a charity concert in Graz. Plus the rarely heard overture from a one-act singspiel commissioned for the opening of the new theatre at Pest, and the final movement from the symphony Wagner described as "The Apotheosis of the Dance".

Meanwhile, the poet Prosdocimo is trying to find a subject for a new play, and he decides to stir things up in the name of theatre, especially when he discovers Zaida, a young gypsy girl who was jilted by a prince in Turkey, and Don Narciso, the previous lover of Fiorilla, now usurped by Selim.

Burgess at 100, Burgess and Criticism - Rhoda Koenig

Anthony Burgess is one of the best-known English literary figures of the latter half of the twentieth century. A polymath of the highest order, he was a novelist, composer, translator, screenwriter, travel writer, teacher, linguist, phoneticist, essayist, short-story writer, critic and poet.

Five writers, some of whom knew him in person, reflect on their favourite Burgess incarnation, exploring this extraordinary 20th-century man of letters from different angles. Everything Burgess wrote contributed to his main oeuvre, his musical composition as important to him as his novels that were shaped heavily by his critical analysis of other's fiction which was informed by his poetry and so on. Burgess at 100 offers personal as well as critical insight into why and how he is a literary figure of such importance.

Part of Radio 3's Burgess Centenary programming, marking 100 years since the birth of Manchester-born novelist and playwright Anthony Burgess.

Burgess and criticism - Rhoda Koenig

Rhoda Koenig has spent the first half of her life in the US, the second in England. She has been a theatre reviewer and literary feature writer for The Independent and literary editor, then book reviewer, for New York magazine. She has reviewed books for the Times, the Telegraph, the Standard, the New York Review of Books, Vogue, the TLS, the LA Times, the Spectator, Private Eye, and many other publications. She is the author of a book, The New Devil's Dictionary, an update of the original by Ambrose Bierce.

Anthony Burgess is a key figure in 20th-century world literature. His dystopian satire A Clockwork Orange is still a global best seller, and was adapted into a highly controversial film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971. Burgess produced numerous other novels, including the Enderby quartet, and Earthly Powers, regarded by many as his greatest novel. He wrote librettos and screenplays, including for the 1977 TV mini-series Jesus of Nazareth. He worked as a literary critic for several publications, including The Observer and The Guardian, and wrote studies of classic writers, notably James Joyce. A versatile linguist, Burgess lectured in phonetics, and translated Cyrano de Bergerac and the opera Carmen, among others. Burgess also composed over 250 musical works.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), Emotional Crisis

Donald Macleod introduces music by Beethoven from 1812 - a year of family crises and emotional torment revealed in one of the most famous love letters in the history of music. Thanks to his unfulfilled passion for this mystery woman, described only as the 'Immortal beloved' in his letter to her, Beethoven was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Perhaps because of his disturbed state of mind, he tried to prevent his brother Johann from marrying a woman he regarded as completely unsuitable, just as he had with his other brother Caspar Carl six years earlier. But on a happier note, Beethoven did get to meet his hero Goethe that year, whose words have inspired many of his loveliest songs, including two for chorus and orchestra - 'Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage.' Time and time again, Beethoven rose above personal crises, often writing some of his best music at such times. His eighth symphony was no exception. Described, along with his seventh, by the eminent critic Ernest Newman as giving voice to "a mood of joyous acceptance of life and the world".

Anthony Burgess is one of the best-known English literary figures of the latter half of the twentieth century. A polymath of the highest order, he was a novelist, composer, translator, screenwriter, travel writer, teacher, linguist, phoneticist, essayist, short-story writer, critic and poet.

Five writers, some of whom knew him in person, reflect on their favourite Burgess incarnation, exploring this extraordinary 20th-century man of letters from different angles. Everything Burgess wrote contributed to his main oeuvre, his musical composition as important to him as his novels that were shaped heavily by his critical analysis of other's fiction which was informed by his poetry and so on. Burgess at 100 offers personal as well as critical insight into why and how he is a literary figure of such importance.

Part of Radio 3's Burgess Centenary programming, marking 100 years since the birth of Manchester-born novelist and playwright Anthony Burgess.

Burgess and language - Kevin Jackson

Kevin Jackson is a writer, broadcaster and film-maker. He wrote and narrated the BBC documentary "The Burgess Variations" and directed "Burgess at 70". More recently, he edited Burgess's "Revolutionary Sonnets" for Carcanet Press. His other publications include a history of the year 1922, "Constellation of Genius"; a collection of essays, "Carnal"; and an English version of the Crimean Sonnets of Adam Mickiewicz. His latest film, "A Quincunx for Sir Thomas Browne" is now on show at the Royal College of Physicians, London.

Anthony Burgess is a key figure in 20th-century world literature. His dystopian satire A Clockwork Orange is still a global best seller, and was adapted into a highly controversial film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971. Burgess produced numerous other novels, including the Enderby quartet, and Earthly Powers, regarded by many as his greatest novel. He wrote librettos and screenplays, including for the 1977 TV mini-series Jesus of Nazareth. He worked as a literary critic for several publications, including The Observer and The Guardian, and wrote studies of classic writers, notably James Joyce. A versatile linguist, Burgess lectured in phonetics, and translated Cyrano de Bergerac and the opera Carmen, among others. Burgess also composed over 250 musical works.

FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b08g56hm)
Orchestra Baobab

Orchestra Baobab, the legendary Senegalese Afro-Cuban big band, recorded in concert at the Roundhouse in London in January. The gig is introduced by Kathryn Tickell, who is joined by Lucy Duran to discuss the Baobabs' long history (they formed in 1970 in Dakar).
The band take their name from the Dakar nightclub where they were resident. They fused Afro-Cuban rhythm and Portuguese Creole melody with Congolese rumba, high life and a whole gamut of local styles, kick-starting a musical renaissance in their native Senegal, which turned the capital, Dakar, into one of the world's most vibrant musical cities.

The band released dozens of recordings before disbanding in the mid-80s but it was their neglected 1982 album Ken Dou Werente that became a cult-classic, re-released to huge acclaim in 1989 under the title Pirate's Choice. They reformed in 2001, and now Orchestra Baobab are back in the studio recording a new album, which is set for release in Spring 2017.
